    Highly unlikely unless you have serious engine issues & a Subaru engineer inspects your ECU.

    Read the whole post. I already said its highly unlikely.

    Your saying a quality catback exhaust won't increase horsepower or torque at all?

    So, in my mind, anything that would be a large-ticket item that would be a warranty issue, they're gonna try and find any way they can not to pay. If not catastrophic engine failure, then trans, axles, whatever it may be. Just a tune as I'm talking about with no other mods or just a DP then I'm sure it'd be less likely for them them to check, but they still could. This sucks. I mean, every WRX owner that puts a tune on their car is basically (potentially) screwed out of their warranty??? This is total BS. What about all of the other manufacturers (GM, Ford, Dodge, Nissan, Toyota, Especially trucks, etc) and hand-held tuners? I've just never heard of this being an issue before. I understand that b/c of the turbo motor mods are potentially more detrimental to the motor, especially done incorrectly, but are other manufacturers the same way and far as just voiding your warranty and that's it? F-ing lame...

    Wait I'm confused... Cat-back you don't need a tune?

    In that case, a cat back is just for show and sound?
